What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do

by David Jeremiah

Sometimes the big and small decisions in life seem overwhelming. How do you know what choices to make about your career, kids, relationships? Even when you make good decisions, how do you avoid temptation along the way? In What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do, Dr. David Jeremiah walks you through the book of James to glean God's wisdom on issues such as finances, faith, and decision making. Most significantly, this practical book shows you how to have the kind of faith that perseveres in persecution, resists temptation, and responds obediently to God's Word. What does it look like to consider God in all your plans, depend on God rather than wealth, and put prayer above your personal efforts? It looks, as James discovered, like living a life of great joy.

What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do: The Book of James

by David Jeremiah

According to Dr. Jeremiah: "In life, we often find ourselves not knowing what to do when faced with trials and temptations. This book is the perfect guide for those uncertain situations. What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do explains how to have the kind of faith that perseveres in persecution, resists temptation, responds obediently to God's Word, overcomes prejudice, produces good works, controls the tongue, follows God's wisdom, considers God in all its plans, depends on God rather than wealth, waits patiently for the return of the Lord, and makes prayer, not personal effort, its spiritual resource." Through study questions and exercises, at the back of the book, the author encourages his readers to apply the insights they have obtain from reading his work along with the Book of James and other relevant scriptures to their own lives.

What Universities Can Be: A New Model for Preparing Students for Active Concerned Citizenship and Ethical Leadership

by Robert J. Sternberg

In What Universities Can Be, the high-profile educator Robert J. Sternberg writes thoughtfully about the direction of higher education in this country and its potential to achieve future excellence. Sternberg presents, for the first time, his concept of the ACCEL model, in which institutions of higher education are places where students learn to become Active Concerned Citizens and Ethical Leaders. One of the greatest problems in our society is a lack of leaders who understand the importance of behaving in ethical ways for the common good of all. At a time when new models of education are sorely needed, universities have the opportunity to claim the education of future leaders as their mission.In the course of laying out the ACCEL concept and how such a model might be achieved, Sternberg offers many insights into the realities of higher education as it is practiced today and suggests ways that we could move in a better direction, one that would produce graduates who make the world a better place in which to live. Sternberg's compelling narrative and convincing argument address all aspects of universities, such as admissions, financial aid, instruction and assessment, retention and graduation, student life, diversity, finances, athletics, governance, and marketing. This book is essential reading for educators and laypeople who are interested in learning how our universities work and how they could work better.

What We Talk About When We Talk About Books: The History and Future of Reading

by Leah Price

Reports of the death of reading are greatly exaggeratedDo you worry that you've lost patience for anything longer than a tweet? If so, you're not alone. <P><P>Digital-age pundits warn that as our appetite for books dwindles, so too do the virtues in which printed, bound objects once trained us: the willpower to focus on a sustained argument, the curiosity to look beyond the day's news, the willingness to be alone. <P><P>The shelves of the world's great libraries, though, tell a more complicated story. <P><P> Examining the wear and tear on the books that they contain, English professor Leah Price finds scant evidence that a golden age of reading ever existed. From the dawn of mass literacy to the invention of the paperback, most readers already skimmed and multitasked. <P><P>Print-era doctors even forbade the very same silent absorption now recommended as a cure for electronic addictions. The evidence that books are dying proves even scarcer. <P><P>In encounters with librarians, booksellers and activists who are reinventing old ways of reading, Price offers fresh hope to bibliophiles and literature lovers alike.

What You Don't Know Can Keep You Out of College

by G. F. Lichtenberg Don Dunbar

In the tradition of The Gatekeepers, a veteran counselor provides the missing key to the college admissions door with insider wisdom about how admissions committees think, and the thirteen fatal mistakes that can ruin an application. When Don Dunbar was a college counselor for Phillips Academy, Andover, in the 1980s, he got to sit in on the meetings where the nation’s top colleges decided whether to admit his students. Prep school counselors no longer get this kind of astonishing access, but in those meetings, Don discovered a little-known key to college admissions that still holds true today. Many applicants look alike, based on their grades, test scores, and extracurriculars, so colleges want something more: They want applicants with character. Most of us know what character means, but not in the way that admissions officers define it. Admissions officers have tremendous integrity, and to them, character equals what a student will contribute to his or her community, good or bad, over the next four years. Don explains the concept of character in terms that high school students can understand, using examples from his thirty years of working with kids. He shows readers how to avoid the thirteen fatal character mistakes that even the brightest students make when applying to college and democratizes the admissions process, making his advice available to all students. .
